I took my family here when they visited Canberra (who are all very well travelled) and they absolutely loved it! To quote my Mum "that's the best Indian food I've ever had!" Great service even with staff emergencies during the evening and the people are just lovely! 👌

I have been to this place a couple of times now and the service and food is always wonderful. It's location on the second level of one of Manuka's retail spaces, away from the other crowded eateries of the town centre leads to a peaceful and relaxing meal every time.

The décor and air-conditioning was lovely. The staff were friendly and courteous, they gave us plenty of time to order and the food was prompt and really tasty.

Have never been disappointed from the food and service of Jewel of India, one of the best restaurant in terms of Sub Continent food. I usually visit Jewel of India every second month and receive the same level of service and tasty food as always ! Highly recommend this place

Great meal and great banter. We ordered a banquet and have never been so full, the prawn curry was amazing. Cheers!

We go to the Jewel from time to time. It is always good value and good food. That has not changed with the new owners. Attentive service was excellent. Food timely, tasty and reasonably priced. Recommend the Jewel feast for two.

With a calm, inviting atmosphere, friendly and genuine staff, Jewel of India has become a regular spot for us. We love having dinner there, and have a regular order of the Lamb Vindaloo with Raita and Naan bread, it is excellent!! The staff are always friendly and are actually quite funny, and always remember us and thank us for dropping... More

Have the banquet for 2 as we have always found this very good value. It also allows you to choose 2 curries on top of a variety of entree style foods. Bottled wine prices are good too.

Mixed results over dinner. Butter chicken had no spice and was so bland. Prawn dish was good. Naan was underwhelming. Was the rice instant packet stuff? But the service was poor. Our finished dirty plates left on our table for over 20 minutes after we finished our meal and stacked them up to make space.

The Staff and Management of this beautifully located restaurant which seems to hover in the tree tops, make a visit a pleasure. Just the right amount of friendliness and welcome, just the right amount of advice on the menu (particularly Indian beer - thanks!) Food - the tandoori chicken is really exceptional, moist but perfectly cooked. Vegetable curry is sublime.... More
